I've installed https://www.itefix.no/i2/content/copssh-free-personal-edition. Running a shell script the command

if ! "$basedir/grep" -qf  "$mydir/$file_with_string" "$myotherdir/file_to_check" ; then

gives the error

Bin grep.exe: error while loading shared libraries: cygpcre-1.dll cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

The file cygpcre-1.dll is missing in the bin folder of that ssh implementation. Also, cygcheck is not part of this installation.

Thank you.

Seems that your copssh package is somewhat inconsistent.

You can get cygpcre-1.dll e. g. here (a German mirror):
http://ftp.uni-kl.de/pub/windows/cygwin/release/pcre/libpcre1/libpcre1-8.31-1.tar.bz2

After decompressing with "bunzip2" and unpacking with "tar" you'll get just the DLL
"cygpcre-1.dll" which you can copy to your copssh "/usr/bin" directory.
The tarball contains the path "usr/bin" so best "cd" to "/" of copssh and unpack it there.

If you don't have "bunzip2" or "tar" try something like "WinZIP".
